In Britain, the new leader of the Conservative Party and the Indian-origin sage Sunak seems to be lagging behind in the race for the Prime Minister's post. After nearly a dozen debates and three TV debates, rival Liz Truss seems to be leaving him behind.

Result on Monday

Voting for Conservative Party members ended on Friday. Rishi Sunak and Foreign Minister Truss were fielded for the post of Prime Minister by the Conservative Party. Who among these will become the Prime Minister, its results will be released on Monday. The next day Prime Minister Boris Johnson will formally submit his resignation to Queen Elizabeth II.

A month after Johnson's resignation was announced, mail and online voting by an estimated 200,000 Tory members (supporters or members of the Conservative Party) began in early August and ended at 5 p.m. Friday. The Truss got overwhelming support over Sunak in the voting of the members.

Both members make last minute efforts

In the final election program, Prime Minister Sunak and his rival, Liz Truss, made a last-ditch effort to persuade Tory members who had just lost their lives with their views on inflation, crime fighting, tax and immigration reforms, and foreign policy priorities. Until now it has not been decided who they will vote for.
